This is about my 3rd post in the history of GeekZone.... so go easy on me :-)
I've been looking at the detail behind the Fibre / UFB solution that Chorus have started rolling out.
So this stuff is using GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network), right?
Correct me if i'm wrong: but from what I have read it's possible that up to 32 houses may be sharing the same SFP or connected to the same fibre node.
Does anyone know what measures are in place to stop a person from connecting directly to the fibre in their home and sniffing the traffic that the other 31 people in the neighbourhood are receiving?
Ok so it's not the end of the world we're only talking about home users here.. but whats to stop me from listening in on my neighbours VOIP conversation? (Well, at least the downstream part)
Food for thought? or is there one key thing I'm missing here?
